“The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.” – Selena
Selena Quintanilla has done certainly just that. 20 years later the legacy of the beautiful Mexican-American actress, singer, and fashion designer lives on. Selena continues to touch the lives of Latinas around the world no matter where you come from. Selena’s legacy went beyond her music, bringing the Latino community together. As a young Dominican and Puerto Rican girl, Selena’s music was a huge part of my childhood and lord only knows how many times I’ve watched and continue to watch her movie. You see whether we are Dominican, Cuban, Mexican, Panamanian, etc, Selena gave us all someone to look up to. Overall what makes Selena live in our hearts forever was that she was a beautiful person. Her warm and genuine smile won over any room she walked into, with her iconic red lipstick of course. She also always showed her fans appreciation. The Tejano singer was killed shortly after opening the official Selena fan club by assistant Yolanda Saldivar. A life which was taken too soon but her legacy will live on forever.
To show just what an impact this amazing cantante has made in the world including her contribution of Tejano music worldwide, her life and legacy will be celebrated in the festival Fiesta de la Flor. Fiesta de la Flor will be a two day festival from April 17th – 18th, in Corpus Christi, Texas. The festival will cost $5.00 for adults and $2.00 for children. It will include performances from artist such as Los Lobos, Nina Diaz, AB Quintanilla y Los Kumbia King Allstarz and many more to pay tribute to the Queen of Tejano.
“Anything for Selenas.”
